I have $166K and I need the £500k achievement. What is the best way to get big money fast?

Vigilante, acquiring cars, drug deals or playing through the story should warrant quite a bit of money with much effort. I don't think you're going to get that much cash near the beginning of the game.

There are taxi missions?

How much does the street racing and police jobs give you? I think the only way is to do the story again and not spend too much money because you get $250k each from 2 certain missions and that may be the only other option. :(

Edit: But can you still do Vigilante missions and stuff after you have completed them?

You can continue to hunt down current crimes as much as you please from what I know. I didn't check the payout for completing them, but I'm pretty sure it's higher than cab fares which average $20-40.

You beat those missions and only have that much?! You must've spent a lot. XD

Assassination missions? I think those pay well.

Yeah but I bought a load of weapons and taxis. I kinda rushed through it this time but I'll keep it on a save anyway and play through again and learn to not spend so much. I'll try with the Vigilante and Taxi ones but not getting my hopes up.

How do you do Taxi missions anyway?

Zombienm, you probably haven't hit the bank job mission yet. $250,000 right there. I've got 15 missions left and I'm at about $329,000. I use taxis all the time, but I use Roman's whenever I can.

Nah, the bank job is soon though.. I think. I'm doing missions for the guy who I heard gives it to you. I rarely use Taxi's, only been busted twice, have died several times though and bought some weapons once, but I still think I should have a bit more money :P

I discovered after completing the Story; I have been awarded a huge sum and my balance is now $400k. At least that's a lot closer than I was :D

Yeah, at the end of the game I had $700k. I only got busted once though, I kept letting the cops kill me so I didn't lose my weapons.

Yer getting busted is so much worse than dying

Curious about this one, does it have to be $500,000 in your pocket at once, or will it include money you've spent on cloths, food, hospital, etc?

It's your current balance that needs to be at $500k.
